About the Author:

David Gilmour’s most recent book is The Last Leopard, a biography of Giuseppe di Lampedusa which has been highly acclaimed. Mr. Gilmour has also written The Transformation of Spain, Lebanon: The Fractured Country, and The Hungry Generations.

From Library Journal:

Gilmour has established his knowledge of Spain and its history in such previous publications as The Transformation of Spain ( LJ 12/85). In this unique addition to travel literature, he turns his attention to the country's cities. Claiming that regional identities in Spain are stronger than in most of Europe, he paints very different pictures of nine intriguing Spanish cities. Gilmour has admittedly chosen only those cities he enjoys and knows well. Readers will travel with him as he skillfully interweaves history with its contemporary remains. Literary in nature, his book is also easily digestible. With its timely publication date--given the Olympic-generated interest in Spain--this volume also provides lasting appeal to both student and traveler. Recommended for most travel or cultural collections.
